SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — April showers bring May flowers, but what about when it’s the late summer?
The Flower Show is returning to the New York State Fair this year, returning after their last appearance in 2019, in the Horticulture Building.

“As a gardener here in Central New York, it is meaningful to be able to give back to the community in this way. I’d like to thank the State Fair for giving me the opportunity to work in the Horticulture Division at the Great New York State Fair,” said Flower Show Superintendent Fred Miller.
